- Coca Cola Co.
The Coca-Cola Co. has launched a multi-media marketing campaign aimed at the nation’s 45 million Hispanics. The campaign was developed with Ogilvy & Mather, the Hispanic marketing and advertising agency of record for Coca-Cola North America.
The tagline “Destapa Tus Sueños,” or “Unleash Your Dreams,” is the Hispanic adaptation of the Atlanta-based beverage giant’s “Open Happiness” global integrated marketing campaign that began in January. The fully integrated Hispanic adaptation includes new point of sale, enhanced shopper experiences, consumer promotions, television, radio, print and out of home advertising, mobile, digital and music components. The new ad will run on Spanish language networks including Univision, Telemundo and TeleFutura.
Beginning in May, Coca-Cola will start national marketing, advertising and public relations campaign featuring the Mexican National Team in the United States.
- Foster Farms
In "Dancing," the first of two spots created by advertising agency Grupo Gallegos, the pair of seemingly plump imposters are revealed to be scrawny chickens full of saltwater and are foiled in their attempts to become natural, fresh, locally grown Foster Farms chickens. In "UFO," set to premiere in a few weeks, viewers will see the pair abducted and later rejected by aliens when they discover that the Imposters contain 15 percent injected saltwater.
The award-winning Foster Imposters campaign was originally created in 1993 by Goodby, Silverstein & Partners with the Imposters appearing in more than 25 commercials in Spanish and English. In 2006, Grupo Gallegos adapted the original concept and developed a creative campaign specifically for the Latino market. The Imposters exist on a steady junk food diet and embody everything that Foster Farms does not: chicken that's natural, fresh, locally-grown and never injected with saltwater.
- Census Bureau
Amid fears that millions of people may be overlooked during next year's census, the Census Bureau will launch a $250 million promotional campaign to encourage participation in the decennial head count, especially among hard-to-reach minority groups in urban areas.
More than half those funds will go for advertising across traditional and social media, and nearly a quarter will be devoted exclusively to Asian, black and Hispanic outlets. Companies including General Mills and Target and civil rights groups including the NAACP will encourage their customers and members to fill out census forms next year. Global Hue buys Multicultural media for the Census Bureau.

Fairfax County FCU got a $99,900 innovation grant from NCUF to attract members from the Hispanic community to its fold.

"I am forecasting the trend to continue upward as the frequency of our message continues to increase and we continue to expand our messages through additional channels."
